Miramar Inn – Temporary Lodging Facility
MCAS Miramar, California, USA
The Marine Corps believes in caring for its members and their families. When temporary lodging needs arise, the Corps makes no exception. Temporary lodging facilities offer short-term housing solutions for military members, their families and guests. The Marine Corps selected Haskell as the partner to help achieve their mission.
Marine Corps tradition dictates that the mission takes priority. To help achieve its goals, the Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) participated in the facility design. The collaborative design effort included building full-scale mock-ups of lodge rooms. This allowed the client to actually experience the design. Haskell empowered MCCS to better accomplish its goals without uncertainty.
The Miramar Inn provides an inviting atmosphere for military personnel. The two new wings provide amenities alleviating the stress often associated with moves. The LEED Gold Certified facility gets 14 percent of its electrical usage from renewable energy, reduces storm water runoff and incorporates Energy Management and Control systems to lower energy costs.
Haskell has proven themselves as leaders in the Design Build industry and invaluable partners to the United States Marine Corps. MCAS Miramar and Marine Corps Community Services look forward to a continued partnership.Col. John P. Farnam Commanding Officer, Marine Corps Air Station Miramar
